Rest Easier at Night with Sleep Apnea Therapy
Do you regularly feel exhausted in the mornings, even if you seemingly slept a full eight hours the night before? Are headaches and sore throats a common part of your routine as you get ready for work? Does your spouse constantly complain about your loud snoring? These are common signs that something is not quite right. In fact, you may be a victim of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which is a caused by a blockage in your throat that prevents air from flowing freely and forces patients to wake up constantly throughout the night.
Have you been diagnosed with sleep apnea by your physician? Have you struggled to use your bulky CPAP machine in the past and are desperate for a better solution? Here in Beverly Hills, Dr. Julie Valentine wants to help you achieve the quality sleep you deserve with her focused, comforting approach. A custom-made oral appliance can make all the difference in your nightly routine! Please contact us today if you have any questions, or if you’re ready to schedule a visit.
How Do You Treat Sleep Apnea?
No one knows your mouth better than your dentist, which is why they’re typically the first ones to notice symptoms that may lead to sleep apnea in a patient. They’re also excellent when it comes to preventing this blockage in the first place. Dr. Valentine will design an oral appliance with your one-of-a-kind smile in mind, and its purpose will be to adjust the jaw and/or tongue so that your airway will remain open. Oral appliances are comfortable, convenient, and easy to travel with you. Before long, you’ll find yourself not only sleeping better but enjoying a happier, healthier life as well!
